I Know There Is A Little More
Crazy I Know
Some things in life you can't show
It is hidden under layers of years we have lived
An unusual thought
It must of started small and grew
Like a little sapling that is now a tree
I try to ignore it
I try to analyze and use reason
Nothing makes any sense
Let me explain
I was in the shower in the last hour
Enjoying wonderful sensations
I reached for the liquid Dove soap
After two attempts
All I got is a loud squirt
But no soap
It was low but I didn't realize how low
Most people would just throw it away
But not me
I think to myself
I can get more
So I put it under the shower head and funnel some water in the top
Shake it wildly
Then within seconds I tried squirting the soap again
This time success
Lots of soap came out
All it needed was a little help
I will use it until this soap is gone
I hate waste and I guess you would call me frugal
I paid my hard earned dollars for the soap
Nobody gave me a discount if I threw some of it away
I am practical
What makes me wonder is why I have an obsession with going the extra mile
I never grew up during the depression
I heard stories from my mom what it was to go without
My father taught me waste not want not
I have to be true to myself
Have you ever done something like this ?
Maybe you know someone like me ?
What are your thoughts ?
Am I clever to get the most out of a bottle of liquid soap
Do I push it too far
I will leave you all soapy and sudsy
What would you do if you are left with the same choice?
Have a good night. ..
